Most serious collectors rely on the Internet these days. For example, other club web sites can provide useful information. Worldwide Internet auctions can provide excellent opportunities to find those rare stamps - or even stamps you just cannot find at club meetings. For those who want to try their hand at winning awards in the exciting world of exhibiting, there are sites and organizations devoted to just this subject. If one is not a traditional country collector, but more into thematic collecting, the Internet is where to go for information. Indeed, most stamp catalogues can now be found on the Internet (for a price!). Another little known fact is that stamps can be one of the most stable of investments, with the values of many rare stamps consistently rising over the years. The web can be the source for information on such investments. Finally, there are numerous stamp exhibitions and shows in the lower mainland of BC and elsewhere throughout the year and you can find the latest info right here.
